after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

sunday 'original hard man' ride

greg and i heading up the east side of topanga canyon

sunday was as chance for greg and i to reconnect with our original hard man ride. we started out from HQ thru l.a. to san vicente to PCH to up topanga canyon to ventura blvd. to HQ. greg 'hard man' jarrett was up to his usual psych-ops and after playing weak all morning, decided that it was a good idea to set a strong tempo and pull me along at 25mph plus during the last 10 miles of a 60 mile [did i mention the climbs] through the valley to HQ. his lead out was so i could practice attacking the last climb before HQ. needless to say i was cooked when i finished. thanks greg 'hard man' for kicking me in the arse and making me actually put in some serious work in the saddle [it did feel good after it was over].
